The Diva is a big fan of libraries and librarians! For those new to the field of emergency management, here are 3 of the many excellent sources of information available to you. The Diva wants to be sure that newcomers are aware of these library resources:
- The Learning Center at FEMA’s National Emergency Training Center. At the recent Higher Education in Emergency Management Symposium, Librarian Ed Metz and other EMI staffers led a tour of the library and its resources. It is a great place, located on the EMI campus in Emmitsburg, MD and online too, at this URL.
- Natural Hazards Center Collection. This is a joint project of the USF Libraries Special & Digital Collections and The Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute Research Library. This is the direct URL.
- The Disaster Research Center at the Univ. of Delaware. More information about the Quarantelli Research Collection is at this URL. Librarian: Ms Pat Young.
Update on June 17. Thanks to Bill Cumming for this direct link to some of the essential Emergency Management Reference documents on this page of the FEMA website.
